IOBAC MagTabs®

Simple adhesive-free installation for carpet, LVT and woven vinyl flooring

 

 

Magnetic on one side and dry-tack on the other, IOBAC MagTabs work by locking tiles tightly together using a unique 2-dimensional grip to create the next generation in “floating floor” technology.

 

Adhesive-free flooring that’s tough enough for the harshest spaces, yet kind to the planet

These smart little tabs affix to any magnetically receptive floor, whether that’s a metal raised access floors, Ezy-Install Underlay, or  IOBAC Express Cure or High Grab resins.

They can also be used on any sub-floor suitable for floating floor installations.

Carpet tiles, woven vinyl or +4mm luxury vinyl tiles are then simply connected into place.

MagTabs are proven in use with many installations using leading flooring brands including Shaw Contract, Forbo, Tarkett, Desso, Ege Carpets, BalsanBolonBLOQ and Milliken.

How MagTabs Work

Powerful Dual Grip technology

Our next generation MT4+ MagTabs are thinner, lighter, yet stronger than ever before, thanks to patented IOBAC Dual Grip technology which combines dry-tack with magnetism for phenomenal grab!

Secure grip across multiple floor covering types in even the heaviest of footfall areas.

 

Unique 2 Dimensional Hold

Tiles are held together horizontally as per conventional floating floor solutions

PLUS, due to magnetic attraction

IOBAC MagTabs also enable a strong grip in the vertical direction, ensuring tiles are secured well in place until the time comes to uplift them.

Clean Removal & Reuse

Remove flooring cleanly and easily for reuse or recycling, with the base left contamination-free and ready for the next flooring installation straight away.

If multiple trades create a dusty environment, simply wipe clean and reuse multiple times without loss of performance.
